Project-Based Learning in O.R. & Sustainability – Webinar


I will be giving a webinar titled “Project-Based Learning in Operations Research and Sustainability” on Wednesday at 10:00 AM EST on

To access it, check this page.

Here’s the abstract:

Operations research (O.R.) is playing an increasingly important role in addressing sustainability challenges such as green-house gas reduction and renewable energy use. In this talk, quantitative sustainability projects that can be utilized in undergraduate courses are described using the lens of descriptive, predictive, and prescriptive analytics recently espoused by the O.R. community.

I gave a similar talk at the New Jersey MAA section meeting in a “Mathematics and Planet Earth” session a couple of weeks ago.

Thanks to Ahmet from for the invitation.  He has been posting the videos of the webinars on youtube after the fact so you should be able to access it there later on.
